The Day That Changed My Life - The End of His Journey

And the Survey Says........

The fond memories of the Family Feud dates back to the days when Richard Dawson would introduce the guests and greet the women with a kiss before he asks them their first question. It would make me cringe yet I looked forward to it. Mr. Dawson hosted many families on the show and kept us at home engaged and wishing to one day be a part of the show. It was a fun time for our family as we would answer the questions and gauge how well we would have done if we were on the show. However, when Mr. Dawson retired from the show, there were many other fun hosts but certainly none like him.

Richard Dawson passed away from complications of esophageal cancer. Esophageal cancer may be caused by consuming alcohol, Barrett's esophagus, bile reflux, chewing tobacco, drinking extremely hot liquids, gastroesophageal reflux disease, obesity, radiation treatments around/near the esophagus and smoking.

No one can imagine the pain and suffering that he endured. However, we pray that he is at peace and that his family and friends will ind comfort in the memories. As fans, he will be with us forever as we recall those fond memories of seeing him in our homes each day.

While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever.

And now for some good laughs :-)
